The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) administers three postgraduate awards schemes.
These schemes provide funding for students undertaking doctoral research in the arts and humanities.
The University of Edinburgh invites applications from suitably qualified candidates for PhD study as part of their AHRC Block Grant Partnership (BGP) award in the subjects listed below, to cover maintenance and fees for full-time or part-time study.
All candidates must fulfil relevant AHRC eligibility criteria.
Please contact your school to check whether this funding is available for the degree for which you will be studying.
For further information please contact the relevant School of study. It is necessary to complete an application form for admission as a postgraduate student before applying to be considered for an AHRC award. Applications for study at the University of Edinburgh can be made online.
Applications will be short-listed and selected by panels in the relevant subject areas and then checked by the University Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) panel.
Selection panels will follow the AHRC’s Guide to Student Recruitment and Nomination
Applicants will be informed by their subject area if they have been successful and will be submitted to the AHRC for an award.
At this stage applicants will then be required to apply via the Research Councils’ web portal. Further instructions will be sent to those who are nominated.
